THE EMPTINESS OF DEATH
by Michael Kenney

Only God can enlighten the eyes of a mourning soul to see victory in the cold emptiness of death. His steadfast love can be trusted and His comfort can pity away our sorrow. The quite promises of God lift the heaviness of our grieving spirits unto the upper air of resurrection hope which warms the aloneness of our souls. The departed spirit of our loved one leaves an empty space of nothingness deep within our inner being. Internal nothingness echoes a cry for eternal belonging and filling. At the time of death, the Spirit thins the fog like veil of separation and we can see the dawn of tomorrow’s eternity. When death arrives, time becomes irrelevant and the eternal becomes alive in the present; the awakening of the eternal brings significance to our short lived emptiness. “Be gracious to me, O LORD, for I am in distress; my eye is wasted from grief; my soul and my body also.” (Psalm 31:9, ESV) May you find pity for your sorrow in the warming presence of your Soul Friend. May your spirit ascend to heaven’s comfort. May your emptiness be a vessel for the dwelling of the eternal.
